Custom Alerts/Chirp Sounds selections

Custom Alerts/Chirp Sounds selections

It seems many of us want more Alert/Chirp sounds to choose from.  Different sounds would make it easy to listen and immediately know which Ring device is activated.  But instead of having Ring pick additional sounds for us, would it be possible to add an alert/chirp sound called "Custom" and then provide a method for the user to "Import" a sound file into this custom slot?

 

Even better, provide "Custom 1", "Custom 2", and Custom 3", etc.  That way the user could import several different sounds according to their specific needs. 

 

There are plenty of Sound Files that can be downloaded free off the Internet.  And you could even make your own sound file or voice-recording file too!  Instead of just "Motion at your Front Door", you'd be able to make "Back door is open", or "Motion at your Backyard Cam."

 

I bet some people wound make some funny/unique sound files to use as their custom alert/chirp sounds!

 

What do you think?

Hello @abittman ,   

 

To clarify, you do have a limited selection of different available "App Alert Tones" or "Chirp Alert" sounds that you can use for your three cameras.  Your three cameras don't have to sound the same on your Ring App

 

But if you are referring to the sound on a Ring Chime or Ring Chime Pro device, then yeah, you are stuck with only one sound emanating out of that chime device for all three cameras. 

 

But as for the sounds coming from your Ring App, you have three cameras and there are more than three Tones available.  In my case, I have more cameras than there are total selection choices.  So I would like the Custom App Alert Tones/Chirp sounds in order not to be limited by the current selections.

 

For you Ring App sounds, you can change your three camera sounds by going to main menu > Devices > select a camera > scroll to and then select Device Settings (the Gear Icon) > Alert Settings > App Alert Tones > and then make your choice for which sound & volume you would like to assign to that camera.  This Alert sound will be heard on your App, and if you have a Ring Alarm system it also would be heard on your Base Station and Keypad.

 

In my case, I have more cameras than available sounds selections, so I prefer the "Custom Request" option.  Currently I have my multiple cameras on the west-side all assigned as "Cowbells" and my multiple east-side are all barking "Dogs."  So at least I can hear which side of the building the motion is on, but I can't tell which exact individual camera sounding.  I have to look and read the 'push' text Notification on my App to determine which camera it is.

 

But with your three cameras, you should be able to make three different sound choices for your Ring App, one for each camera.  I hope this helps you  Smiley Happy

Please keep the seasonal/holiday chimes on the app year round. It’s my doorbell, I should be able to listen to whatever I want. Thanks!

This would really improve security, knowing if there is movemeny in the front yard or the back yard.

The chime options are limited.  Specifically, a chime that is has a short duration and louder.  For example legacy alarm systems from Honeywell use a short, sharp "beep beep beep".

I have multiple Ring doorbells: One at my house, one at Mom's  house, one at a second home, one of my girlfriend's house. I would like to record custom alert sounds that simply say "Someone's at Mom's front door," "Motion at your apartment front door," etc. This would be much more direct and much simpler than trying to decode which doorbell is being activated based on the beep or chirp or whatever. As it stands, I have to remember that my own front door is the ping-pong sound and mom's Front door is some other beep (which actually I can't remember right now).

Hello @joeld ,

 

If you had a "Custom" option then you could import any seasonal/holiday sound or chime that you desire.  You would not be limited to the choices that Ring selects, nor be disappointed when Ring removes that seasonal sound.  Add your Kudo vote to the link below if you like the idea of having Customized App Alert Tones & customized Chirp Tones.
